PARKING permit schemes could be introduced on two Inverness residential streets if approved by councillors this week.

The changes for Ross Avenue and Ballifeary Road, both west of the River Ness, were proposed after consultation with residents.

Members of Highland Council’s Inverness city committee will be asked on Thursday to approve the permit scheme plans and support a traffic regulation order imposing waiting and loading restrictions.

A report highlighted increased use of both streets by non-residents.

A single objector to the Ross Avenue proposal came from an Attadale Road resident who feared displacement of parking onto their street.

There were 12 objections to the Ballifeary Road proposal, but the report said only one would remain unresolved if permit parking was restricted to Monday to Friday from 10am-5pm and limited to a certain zone in Ballifeary Road.
